This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Once more, The Decider becomes The 'Splainer.
This guy is the new nominee for Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He's Admiral Mullen. Good guy. That's why I nominated him. Heh heh.
Thing is, he doesn't think there is a military solution in Iraq. He thinks the solution will have to be political. He's talking about making sure the tours of duty are actually the maximum length that the current rules say they should be. This means we will have to draw down from Iraq starting early next year.
Well, that's a problem for freedom lovers like me. Those who truly love freedom want to give it to everyone, sometimes as the point of a gun. You can't be free to reject freedom. That wouldn't make sense. Free not to be free. That's what logisticals call a parable, a sentence that doesn't make sense. Don't read it too many times. Kinda makes you dizzy. heh heh.
So how can I go against the advice of my new Head of the Joint Chiefs, especially after I said I listen to the generals? Well, thing is, he's an admiral, not a general. Not the same thing. Don't have to listen.
Alberto thought of that. heh heh. He's a clever guy, for a Hispanic. Lots of people misunderestimate him.
